Paul isn’t asking for allegiance to him. He’s asking for allegiance to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul confronts the Galatians with a strong rebuke, reminding them it is God who calls.
Through God’s gracious action, we are called into a covenant relationship. What is God calling you to do, be, and/or become as you reflect the gospel of Jesus Christ?
God’s grace was present before you knew it, met you as you were, and continues to invite you to become the person God intends you to be. Who needs to hear this message today?
Holy God, you have called me into a relationship with you. You have empowered me in my baptism. You are still acting on my behalf today. Help me to be faithful to the call of following you. Amen.
